The Effingham Elf had an airing this morning.  It was dead calm when I got to the field which some kind soul had taken a hay crop from, making it possible to move about freely.

I got 5:01 on a warm-up throw so I thought a big one was on the cards.

A breeze soon came up but no more than 5-7mph.  I built up though 3:01, 3:48, 6:20 to 10:59 and then dropped back to 4:06.  Those are just the flights over 3:00 - there were lots in between.

Lift seemed mostly small and turbulent and it was moving fast enough to have me heading back after 3 or 4 minutes.
